  1. Again with the tragic Walkerton story. It was a couple of brothers, one with a drinking problem (not ” a little too much to drink”)that was under trained and falsified lab results, the other was the supervisor who did a very poor job.
    There was an unusual freak rainstorm that washed cow patties into unprotected well heads making this the perfect storm.

    Seems a little tough for the bookends to stay on message, unless part of that message to talk trash about the other party.
    Kinda reminds me of Paul Martin asking Jack Layton during a debate if his handlers just told him to keep talking…..

  2. Eric, those that forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Trivializing the Walkerton tragedy by blaming it on a couple of drunks is a way of trying to forget the past. The problem was not a couple of drunks, it was a systemic lack of oversight that was thought to be an unnessesary expense by the Consevative government.

  3. When Harris was in the process of gutting the ministry responsible for water safety, the chief medical officer of Ontario tried repeatedly to warn him of the danger. Harris refused to listen, or even talk to him. The officer eventually resigned in disgust, and sadly, a lot of people died and got terribly sick.

  4. And between the “bookends,” Eric, (you’re so respectful) minimal eye contact, awkward body language, seemingly unable to communicate without a script—three strikes in my view.
